Advisement – All Journalism students who plan to attend CSUN during the spring 2012 semester must see their advisers for academic counseling during the advisement period.  Students will not be cleared for registration until the department has the counseling form on file. Sophomores and third semester freshman are required to make an appointment with the academic advisor, Virginia Avila, for a full advisement session by calling (818) 677-2024.
Second semester freshman are required to make an appointment with an adviser in the Student Resource Center/EOP, (818) 677-2024.
Juniors, seniors, and second BA students are required to meet with a faculty adviser. The journalism office does not make appointments. Please plan to see your adviser during his or her office hours.
Graduate students are required to meet with Dr. Melissa Wall during her walk-in office hours. Students should pick up their forms and their files in the Department office, MZ 210, before seeing their adviser.  When advisement is completed, both the form and the file should be returned to the Department office. Advisers’ office hours are available on a sheet outside the Journalism Department office. No advisement will be available for continuing students after October 28! If you are a continuing journalism major and do not see an adviser during the regular advisement period, you may not be able to register until after classes start in the spring.
Conference Opportunity - CCNMA is hosting its annual Journalism Opportunities Conference from October 20-21, 2011, at the USC Davidson Conference Center in Los Angeles.

Study Abroad Opportunity – New York University’s global academic centers has many study abroad opportunities where students can get to know other cultures firsthand, not only through specific studies, but also by engaging with local communities and customs. Students whose majors do not normally allow for a semester away are being presented with the opportunity to stay on track with major requirements while having a meaningful experience in another country. To learn more about NYU’s global academic centers and the application process, or to view specific journalism studies available, visit or call (212) 998-4433.
